The Gamma adapter was a temporary fix for the problem of the Wise damaging natty gut when it slipped in the front of the string gripper. By raising the Wise up two inches on Gamma machines which is the level of the string bed there was no slipping. Then Herb came out with a poorly engineered diablo which has been replaced by another.
Because you have a diablo you don't need to raise the Wise to the level of the string bed unless you are looking for the proportional aspect I mentioned before.
EDIT: This assumes you are talking about a vertical plain and not the horizontal plain when you ask for distance between the Wise and 6004 (turntable.)
